Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the physical appearance of your teeth and mouth. It can help you change the colour, position, shape and size of your teeth and overall appearance of your smile.
Advances in dental technology mean more treatments are available than ever before to give you the smile you have always wanted. Here is a list of the most common types of cosmetic treatments available at Etobicoke emergency dentist, and a guide to what they cost.
Dental veneers are thin shells that are attached to the front of your tooth. They strengthen your teeth, give your teeth a clean new look, and are minimally invasive. They can whiten discoloured teeth and help hide small chips and cracks.
Veneers are often made from porcelain or composite resin. The cost of veneers depends on the type of materials used and the skill of the dentist. Composite veneers range from $250 to $1500 per tooth and can last 5 to 7 years. Porcelain veneers cost more at $925 to $2500 per tooth but will last 10 to 15 years.
Dental crowns are hollow artificial teeth that are used to cover damaged or discoloured teeth. They fit over your natural tooth and cover the entire tooth above the gum line, and protect it from further damage. Dental crowns typically cost $1000 to $3500 per tooth, and you can expect them to last 10 to 15 years.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments asked for at cosmetic dentists in London. Many people want to remove surface stains and get a brighter, whiter smile.
Professional teeth whitening in-office takes less time than at-home treatments and the results are often more dramatic. These treatments cost $650 per visit and may require several visits. For a take-home treatment kit from your dentist, you can expect to pay $100 to $400.
A dental bridge is used to replace several missing teeth. It is usually anchored by teeth on either side and is a permanent replacement so you don’t need to remove them like dentures. The cost for a dental bridge depends on the number of teeth that need to be replaced, but usually runs $700 to $1500 per tooth.
Dental implants are permanent replacement teeth that are fused into your jaw bone so they look and act like real teeth. They are made of titanium implants that fuse to the bone and porcelain or ceramic artificial teeth that fit on top and look just like your natural teeth.
Implants are incredibly durable and long-lasting and have many benefits over traditional dentures. The typical cost is $3000 to $4500 per implant.
Invisalign is a non-invasive and discreet way to improve the look of your teeth. A series of custom made mouth trays are created to straighten crooked or misaligned teeth. These trays are worn day and night and put continuous pressure on your teeth over time to slowly move them into place. The average cost for an invisalign in Oshawa is between $3800 and $4800.
When you have a cavity, your dentist uses different materials for the fillings. Often this is an amalgam filling, which is made up of different types of metal, is long-lasting and very durable. Other colours of fillings are available that look closer to your natural tooth colour. These are more expensive and typically cost $135 to $240 for a white, resin-based composite or a bit more for porcelain fillings.
Unlike traditional dentistry, which focuses on hygiene and treating dental issues like tooth decay and gum disease, cosmetic dentistry procedures are elective. Luckily there are more options available at your cosmetic dentist than ever before to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.Updated Date: 02 October 2019, 16:57
